ND flood victims get more time to register for aid

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — North Dakota flood victims have been given another two months to register for federal disaster assistance.

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — North Dakota flood victims have been given another two months to register for federal disaster assistance.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency says the deadline of Thursday has been extended to Nov. 21. It applies to FEMA aid and U.S. Small Business Administration loans.

FEMA officer Deanne Criswell says flooding was ongoing for nearly six months, and some people are just learning the true extent of their flood damage.

Gov. Jack Dalrymple says he asked for the deadline extension. He says it also means FEMA will continue to operate a disaster recovery center in Minot, where thousands of homes were swamped by the Souris River earlier this summer.
